The putter that's worth the hefty price tag
by Carly Cummins
October 31, 2011

Unfortunately the Honma Beres BH putter pictured below didn't quite make the long journey overseas from Japan in time for my putter test last week, but I simply couldn't keep my hands off it when it finally arrived.

It might not be the prettiest putter that I've ever tested but it puts the most amazing roll on the ball, and the science behind the putter's design explains why.

Essentially Honma's engineers have combined two different materials, lightweight aluminium for the clubhead and a stainless steel sole, to lower the putter's centre of gravity.

Not only does this help you feel the weight of the putter head, it also makes the putter incredibly stable throughout the stroke so that you can roll the ball freely over the grain of the grass with greater accuracy.

Honma BH Putter

There are four different models in the Honma BH putter line, each with a distinctive head shape to suit varying tastes.

The only downside is the price tag, a hefty £250, but if you're looking to spoil yourself then you won't be disappointed.
